Hemanth,

Very useful, even extremely valuable, but very difficult to find what you need.

Re: Feedback on HP Documentation Website

The search engine is a bit quirky. Doesn't seem to support quotes or +/- ala google, so it may take few tries to find what you want. There's quite a bit out there, so it's definitely worth the effort to deal with.

Re: Feedback on HP Documentation Website

I agree with Mark and Pete. It has a lot of useful information, but the search engine is not very good. The search will give you the one which you don't need. But if you use it very often, you will learn how to use it properly.

Re: Feedback on HP Documentation Website

I think docs.hp.com is a great site.

A complaint: We post links to docs here in itrc threads all the time. HP moves the document and the link goes bad. What HP should do is migrate the click to the new location of the document.

That only takes two lines of html code.

Re: Feedback on HP Documentation Website

I wholeheartedly agree that the site is VERY VERY useful. There is tons of documentation there.

I also wholeheartedly agree that it can be very difficult to find exactly what you need.

Re: Feedback on HP Documentation Website

I too find it very useful, though difficult to find anything.

I'd also like to add that if HP is going to have one repository for its manual, that it would be nice if it would include all docs for all products (eg. Openview as well)

Re: Feedback on HP Documentation Website

Hemanth,

I have used it infrequently so a bit difficult to give a fair reflection on the site. That said, I did find the content very informative and usefl, when eventually located.

Site is probably guilty of holding too much information making it difficult to locate.

Re: Feedback on HP Documentation Website

Hemanth,

I find it very very useful. Little patience needed while looking for the documents he/she wishes to refer. Search engine is also needs little perfaction. Over all it's "The" place for any documentation related to HP.
HP's knowledge base site is also has very useful documentations. I refer knowlege base for any troubleshooting purpose but for any new implementation I refer doc site.
I have a question to you .. whay's your feedback about this site.:)
Good Luck..
